What is safeTALK?

safeTALK is a half-day training in suicide alertness.
It helps participants recognise a person with thoughts of suicide, instils confidence to start a conversation and explains how to get the person to a connection that can help them keep safe.

It’s estimated 1 in 5 of us have thoughts of suicide.

Our trainer Sarah, alongside a support resource, will take you through this internationally recognised training course in a way that is safe, relaxed and comfortable.
